  1. You either accept all of God (all that he is), or none of God.
  2. And what god is that? Because you seem to like some scriptures and dislike some scriptures. And some scriptures fit in your thinking yet others do not fit in your thinking, what god are you creating in your mind?
  3. Really good message, heart stirring.
  4. Eph 5:28-29 (28) So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: In every man, there is a need to care for one's body, in some way or form. And even a serial killer, will continue to feed his body, so he can live. Now not all men take care of their bodies in the best way, as regards food, but nevertheless, they do know that they need to feed their bodies, so they can live, and do so. Even someone who has gotten into a depression, and eventually even kills themselves, at some point of their lives, clothed themselves and fed their bodies , so they can live. So generally speaking, no man ever yet hated his own flesh. And often times, depression is a build up of events that have happened in your life. So within a common state, all men in some fashion care for their bodies. And Spiderman, just because you do not understand a scripture does not mean that you have to put doubt to it, and one thing I have learn t, is to first believe the bible, and God will give the understanding, but not trying to understand the bible, without believing it first. And God will give the understanding in his own good time.
  5. Totally agree.
  6. I would tie in Roman Catholicism more with the whore of Revelation.
  7. Rick Warren has fallen away from biblical truth a while ago, rather resorting to gimmicks to bring people in. 1Jn 2:15 (15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. You cannot lead people to Christ by being like the world, or by using the means of the world to gain the world, it just does not genuinely work.
  8. Well these feasts in and of themselves are harmless, and I find you can learn things from celebrating them, but just in remembering to what they point to, but in saying that, God says to not judge someone as concerns celebrating these feasts or not, for it is not mandatory, but can be beneficial, in the sense of learning more about Christ. But you have to be careful least you start to make them mandatory, and that is were the danger lies, otherwise, it is harmless.
  9. Ya I realize this, how some believe that these days have not been put on the shelf in the present, but I find Colossians is extremely specific, even mentioning the words sabbath days, and holy days, and for a day to be holy, it had to be made holy, by the only one who is holy, which is God. It says do not judge as concerns the hand written ordinances of the old testament, such as the old testament sabbath days, and that is what I will believe. And when God wrote the 10 commandments in our hearts, but in a living way, I do not see God putting an exception to any commandment not being written there, for there remaineth a rest to the people of God, a complete rest. But we have been conditioned to believe that only spiritual rest is important or referred to, but why can't it be a full rest? Who says it cannot refer to this?
  10. Now I do not think it has anything to do with it, but rather it has to do with, it being a new covenant. Now the feast days will be reinstated during the millennial reign, but until then, we just simply have life in Jesus Christ, who became the passover, day of atonement etc, in a living way, the feast days were shadows, Jesus, was the reality of those shadows.
  11. Well the other day that Jesus mentioned was not based on the sunday known on the Roman calendar, but rather on the first day of the week, just as the 7th day was not based on saturday, but on the 7th day of the week.
  12. Ya that is true we do have to be careful, I have listened many times to Francis, and he really just wants to be open to the word, and does not claim to know everything, but concerning Ihop, I have heard of it, as being dangerous. God bless.
  13. And I have a whole lot more scriptures than this.
  14. Yes it is true that the original sabbath was on the 7th day, but now we are under a new covenant, with better promises, and every thing , after a certain manner has changed. Col 2:14-16 (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which hand written ordinances did he took out of the way, nailing it to the cross? Well it says let no man therefore; the word therefore is referring to what was previously mentioned before, which is the hand written ordinances, and as a result of the hand written ordinances being nailed to the cross, let no man therefore judge you in meat ordinances (clean , unclean meats), drink ordinances (Nazarite vow), an holy day (God's old testament holy days, which were part of the hand written ordinances given to Moses), or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days plural. It says sabbath days plural, and not sabbath day singular, which refers to the days they held their Sabbaths on, under old covenant times which they had the original 7th day sabbath, but also they had 7 extra Sabbaths, which were the day of Atonement, the 1rst day of the feast of Unleavened bread, the last day of Unleavened bread, Pentecost, Feast of trumpets, Feats of tabernacles, Last day of feast of tabernacles. Why were these handwritten ordinances against them? Not because they were wrong, but because they could not save any one. I believe that under the new covenant, we have a complete, spiritual ,physical, and soulish rest in Christ Jesus, but also a day of rest, under another day. And this day could not be part of the hand written ordinances of Moses, because it never existed back then, but only existed at the time of the day of Pentecost , in the book of Acts. Hebrews 4:8-9 (8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.) Now the word rest, in verse 9, means this: (Strong’s concordance) (G4520 σαββατισμός sabbatismos sab-bat-is-mos' From a derivative of G4521; a “sabbatism”, that is, (figuratively) the repose of Christianity (as a type of heaven): - rest. Total KJV occurrences: 1) Now it mentions that the word sabbatismos is a derivative of G4521, what is G4521? (Strong’s concordance) (G4521 σάββατον sabbaton sab'-bat-on Of Hebrew origin [H7676]; the Sabbath (that is, Shabbath), or day of weekly repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); by extension a se'nnight, that is, the interval between two Sabbaths; likewise the plural in all the above applications: - sabbath (day), week. Total KJV occurrences: 68) Hebrews 4:8 (8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.) Jesus while alive, surely gave rest to the people, in some form, but could not give permanent rest, until he died on the cross, was resurrected on the first day , and ascended to the right hand of the Father, therefore, sending back the Holy Ghost. And Jesus did speak of another day, wherein he would send back the Comforter. And this other day, was none other than the first day of the week, which is when the Holy Ghost was sent down to men to indwell them. So it mentions a day here, another day, wherein rest would be established, that is rest through the Holy Ghost. Isaiah 28:11-12 (11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.) It mentions these other tongues as being some type of rest, and that is what they experienced on the day of Pentecost. Acts 2:4 (4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.) So we see that Jesus (John 14:26,John 16:7) mentioned another day, but also, is it mentioning this other day, for the sake of having a Sabbath rest, as well? Hebrews 4:9 (9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.) I believe that there remaineth a spiritual rest, but also a physical rest through a day of rest, under the New covenant, which the book of Isaiah shows in a certain scripture which I have not covered here. And the word remaineth refers to something that was in the past, that now is, but in a greater way. Under the old they had some type of rest through the victories of Joshua, and a day rest, well is it the same today? Just a complete rest in Christ, and a day of rest?
